    I’m so grateful that Meredith was a part of my life. She was kind & thoughtful. And fiercely loyal to her friends and family. I feel blessed that I was able to visit her while she was in hospice. I will miss her dearly.

    I will miss seeing Meredith’s beautiful smile and wave, as she passes by my house on her daily walk. Meredith was a friend, longtime neighbor, fellow lookout, and someone who always seemed to know what was happening and could be counted on for the latest/local news that would affect our neighborhood. Our street isn’t the same without her. May her memory ALWAYS be for a blessing.

    Meredith’s cheerful and active spirit is a loving reminder that the world can be a place of caring, contribution, and love. Family, friends, Woodridge neighbors and colleagues have all been fortunate that she has been part of our lives. I will miss her greetings as I walk the hill.

    Meredith showed me what heaven is when I looked into her beautiful deep blue eyes and I could see and feel her soul. Her smile showed me love, caring, courage and commitment in all aspects of her life. And to hold her soft and precious hands I could tell how she lived her life. Her family and friends will always know and remember her faithfulness to them. Peace and joy Sweet Meredith.

    Meredith and I started off as travel planners for PACCAR. She called for travel and I was the agent who booked for her. Quickly we became friends, reality TV fans and sports fans. I’m so grateful to have spent some time with her recently and know she is at peace and with me always. Love and blessing to her family…♥️♥️♥️

    Meredith was my lovely pen pal from 8th grade and we kept in touch and visited thorough high school and college. I feel so lucky to have a friend like her and that we were able to reconnect while she was in hospice. She always had a great smile, was so easy to talk with and we had some fun memories I will always cherish.

    Meredith was such a pleasant soul to be around. We would text and check on each other. She was a very private person and I just wish I could have hugged her one more time. Thank you for helping me through a tough year of my life my friend. I love you and say hi to my dad for me.
